Larry Faulkner Nanoscience Building Dedicated at University of Texas

Austin, TX | Posted on October 26th, 2011

When: Thursday, Oct. 27. Ceremony 4:30-5:30 p.m. Building tours 5:30-7 p.m.

Where: Larry R. Faulkner Nanoscience and Technology (FNT) Building on The University of Texas at Austin campus near East 24th Street and Speedway.

Background: The University of Texas at Austin's Larry R. Faulkner Nanoscience and Technology (FNT) Building was named in honor of the former university president in recognition of his leadership in bringing the university's nanotechnology program to national prominence. The 82,463-square-foot building, at 102 E. 24th St. behind the Norman Hackerman Building, was completed in 2006.

Nanoscience is driving fundamental research in many areas, including the development of solar energy technologies, health diagnostics and treatments, and energy storage devices.

Faulkner was president of The University of Texas at Austin from April 1998 through January 2006. He received his doctor's degree in chemistry from the university in 1969 and worked in the lab of Professor Allen Bard. He is the co-author with Bard of the prominent text "Electrochemical Methods: Fundamentals and Applications."
